Robots & Students: Better Together?

Rethinking High School Education in the Age of AI and Robotics

By IGI Global on Apr 14, 2023
0 Researchers postulate that high schools in 2040 will take full advantage of AI and robots – or at least that they should be taking advantage of this technology. The use of these advanced technologies is predicted to be integrated into the creative processes of students, allowing for a resurgence of constructivism and for students to follow their passions. Realistically, robotics will infiltrate classrooms much sooner than 2040, and with the increased presence of educational tech, educating educators on proper usage and optimization is essential. The recent book, Instilling Digital Competencies Through Educational Robotics (ISBN: 9781799886532), published by IGI Global, and authored by experts with more than two decades of experience, outlines the new work culture and training guidelines emerging from innovative educational robotics practices present in the new educational and training ecosystem.
Educational Robotics seems to be a powerful tool to develop new skills, consistent and appropriate to the new scenario in which we are immersed, but the current vision of Educational Robotics is limited and often there seems to be not enough awareness about the multiple values that it can generate even in fields far from pure robotics, and it is not encouraged and stimulated outside of specific niches.
